Why Study Politics & International Studies?

Do you want to know what is REALLY going on?

Then Politics & International Studies is for YOU!

Whether you are interested in protecting the environment, or becoming President of a future Australian Republic, want to know more about what a Treaty with Australia's Aborigines would involve, would like to be informed about the ‘migration and refuge debate', wonder what governments can do about unemployment, want to learn more about relations with our Asian neighbours or just want to be more informed about the events which affect all our lives, our courses will empower you to achieve your goals. From the local to the global, we explore the ins and outs of political decision-making, and the profound ideas about social justice and democracy which inspire both you and others to feel, think and act.

Understand the turbulent world we live in by studying Introduction to International Politics. Learn more about the burning issues facing current and future generations of Australians by enrolling in Introduction to Australian Politics . Or join us in the eternal quest for justice and learn about different theories of law and how others see different social justice issues by enrolling in our first-year political theory course, Justice, Liberty and Democracy.

You'll find that lecturers in Politics are friendly, helpful—and regularly rated by students as outstanding teachers. And of course—they're also leading authorities in their fields.

By helping you understand the world better, politics can also create some exciting career opportunities. Former graduates have become Premiers and Federal Ministers and ambassadors; others have risen to the top echelons of the public service and journalism. They work as advisers, researchers and administrators for community organisations, all levels of government, trade unions, business groups and politicians. Our courses also provide an excellent foundation for those of you interested in law, business and economics. So read on and find out more about our courses, then come and join us!
